I am a great engineer
With years of experience in the studio I am a self-motivated, creative, organized and quality minded Engineer who strives for excellence in every aspect of the studio experience. With excellent communication skills, I am able to give positive support, constructive input and productive ideas to ensure a professional final product with an attention to detail.
I stay current with leading technologies and pride myself on constantly learning new things about music and engineering. My friendly and professional demeanor lends itself to interacting on many levels from technical to creative and troubleshooting to client support. I believe the client and the music come first and I like to create a positive experience and comfortable vibe for the artist.

As a Grammy Nominated Engineer, I have worked in some of the best studios in NYC for over 15 years including The Cutting Room, Baby Monster, Avalon and Stadium Red studios. I can lend my world class studio experience to your project and help you achieve that professional sound utilizing the best of cutting edge technology mixed with classic recording techniques. Being that I am also a trained musician I am more aware than most engineers of what instruments are supposed to sound like and can capture your signature sound and make it stand out and blend. As Engineer I have Grammy nomination, Gold record credit and experience with Platinum/Gold artists.
I have access to a variety of different studios and will tailor the best studios to your project needs and budget requirements. Because I have developed relationships with these various studios, I am able to get a much better rate and save you money and time. I have a few different places I work out of currently. One is a simple vocal booth studio which is good for tight budgets. Another one is better equipped for a big room vocal sound and A list gear. Another studio is primarily analog tape based with classic analog gear including classic a Trident console, Neuman microphones, a Fender Rhodes, Hammond B3 organ and a classic Ludwig drum kit. And yet another is an A list room with a beautiful Yamaha Grand Piano and many ISO booths and an SSL console. I also have access to a studio with lots of old analog keyboards if we need that. So as you can see I can do pretty much anything you need and have extensive resources to do so.
